Although he now stands in front of a camera in the role of Dr. Jackson Avery on the ABC hit series Grey’s Anatomy instead of a chalkboard as a teacher of American Studies, African studies and English at a Philadelphia high school, actor Jesse Williams will soon get the chance to indulge his passion for the past once again in the Colonial Williamsburg Guest Artist program.
Visitors will find themselves in the presence of the past as the TV star, along with a band of acting interpreters, reawaken the memories of life in the 18th century on the grounds of the Governor’s Palace in The Colonial Williamsburg Historical Area, a 301-acre stretch of land dotted with the shops and houses once inhabited by America’s forefathers, during two performances of “What Holds the Future.”
Two performances of “What Holds the Future” will take place on Saturday, September 25, 2010 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tickets ($15 per person) are now on sale.
